Hey all,

My name's Lee and I am currently travelling around North America in my 1976 VW with my girlfriend Willow and our adopted kitten Aimee.

We quit our jobs as teachers, rented our house out in Birmingham and shipped our VW bus named Ruby over to America.

We had spent 3 years restoring the VW, my girlfriend doing most of the work at Bournville College, on the site of the old Longbridge car factory. She taught mechanics and even let the students help with the restoration.

We have been living in Ruby full time since the start of September, covering over 12,000 miles already.

We've had to deal with lots of incidents along the way, the worst was when our windscreen exploded on the Interstate. But fortunately, we were rescued by a guy originally from Telford!

You can see pictures and videos of our trip by searching the Kombi Chronicles on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.

We are so greatful to our VW family, who have been so supportive of us during our time here.

I know the guy who rescued you and the guys you met in coastal Mississippi and New Orleans. They are an awesome group of people.
